Frustrating, repetitive and too much artsy fartsy for me

The camera is atrocious and you have to keep fighting it. It's very frustrating. Wonder jumping mechanic is so awkward that landing or going onto a colossus is hit or miss. The ending was not worth going through all those frustrating issues. In all honesty giving this a 6 because of the improved graphics. If you haven't played this when it first came out on Ps2 like I did, I say play this for a few hours for an experience and put it away for who knows how long unless you can power through the issues.

Too short and lineal. Is a good game but I hate the fact that you have to finish it a few times to unlock things to buff you... Why the hell they can't give the buffs the first time you play. I think I'd have enjoyed it more if I had played it in 2005.

The 2018 Shadow of the Colossus remake is one of the best looking console games to date, giving us stellar visuals and technical aspects unparalleled. The game’s overall aesthetic and vibe is one that will wisp you away to another place, and will leave you awestruck by the scale of its battles. Despite these stellar aspects, you may find yourself often frustrated at mechanics that bring down the overall experience.

Shadow of the Colossus is still a great game despite its game design becoming repetitive and the fact that some of its mechanics can be quite irksome. There still isn't a game out there that can match its dreary atmosphere, simple but effective storytelling, and outstanding boss fights. It's a one-of-a-kind game that still holds up and that PS4 owners should check out -- especially since it's only $40. It may be flawed, but it's another example that shows that truly great games are timeless.

The true definition of a classic, the gameplay and story of Shadow of the Colossus are every bit as great and emotional today as they were in 2005. This outstanding remaster skillfully enhances those qualities with improved controls, performance, and sheer graphical beauty. It remains one of the best PlayStation games ever made, and it’s wonderful that Sony has brought it back to the fore so a new generation of gamers can experience it without having to look past its aged facade.
